Goathill Duck Race 6 May 2024

The annual Goathill Duck races were held on 6th May 2024 on a cloudy bank holiday afternoon, with the threat of rain which fortunately came later than expected.  The recent weather meant that the river was higher than usual. 

Cream teas were served and many people attended including Bishop Michael and his wife. There were eight races with 60 ducks in each race. People paid £1 per duck in each race, the winners given a prize.
